Plush Purple Insect with Iridescent Wings [Oct 2009]
« on: Sunday 07 March 2010, 06:56 pm »
Una emailed me this toy description:

"I am looking for a toy that I remember being given in to me in 1990 I was in kindergarten. It was a plush purple bug with six little legs and shiny iridescent wings. I believe it used to squeak but only because it had a hard thing in it's middle. I've been told by my older sisters it was a rainbow brite toy but I've looked and looked and can't find it. It had yellow eyes with a sleepy look to them and purple eye lids the eyes were just flat plastic with enamel. It might have had a hat like a sleeping cap at one point but it wasn't a glo-worm. It was about 12cm wide and 20cm long.
I hope you can come up with something. Thank you very much."
Una

Was it not the Wonderwhims Butterfly Bee?

Pretty sure it is not the Wonderwhims Butterfly Boo. It is described has having 6 legs and aside from the fact that they are both purple, winged, and bugs they don't really have any other similarities.

Hmm, they still don't match the description...It says they had flat plastic eyes that were yellow with purple lids, and these look embroidered and white. Did your bug with the nightcap have different eyes?

Ooh, that second one is a bed bug!!  I'm not sure where the seller got "beddy bye bug"- maybe an alternate name.  I got one of those for my sister's birthday a year or two ago as a prank gift.  They are so delightfully ugly!

I haven't seen that one before though.  Interesting...
